My name is Porfirio, I'm 46 years old. I am the father of 6 children, all young. I work purchasing and raising cattle to fatten and for the production of milk. Thanks to God, this work is what allows the sustenance of my family and the payment of other household expenses.

I am requesting a loan for one million colones (¢1.000.000) which I will use to purchase cattle for making milk and to fatten, as previously indicated.

I am very happy to have this opportunity to obtain a loan quickly and with installments that I can actually pay.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

As a small and relatively young MFI located in Costa Rica, EDESA has difficulty attracting other sources of capital. Many other microfinance funders do not work in Costa Rica, because overall the country is too rich. However, organizations such as EDESA work with extremely marginalized populations in Costa Rica that really need the access to capital that EDESA provides. By funding EDESA, Kiva lenders are allowing the organization to grow and reach more people than they otherwise would be able to reach.
